This entire week I have taken my Warmoth project guitar to work…and I haven’t played it yet. Because it is a valuable guitar, I do not leave it at work like my usual work guitar. Instead I bring it home and take it in each day. Only I haven’t played it. Something always seems to come up. Some sort of last minute meeting or lunch invitation or something else that has to be done. I usually eat lunch at my desk while I try to catch up on email.
And yet I just remembered that I did play my guitar on Wednesday. I took twenty minutes to stop working and actually play along to some of the songs my work band is covering. I butchered the songs and didn’t feel good about my playing at all. But it did relax me. And I did play.
The thing that worries me is that when I started writing this post I was positive I had not played at work in any way shape or form. Does that mean I’m going crazy? Does that mean I played so poorly yesterday that I completely forgot? Does that mean that I am too busy at work and just assume I had to work?
What it probably means is that I probably play the guitar more than I think I do. I want to play more, so it feels like I almost never play. When in reality I probably do play. I don’t know. Once this week doesn’t feel like a lot. It is getting late and I’m rambling. I’m sure I’ll make sense of this in the morning…perhaps while I’m playing the guitar.
